Lg Tvs Will Come With Built-in Widi For Easy Hd Media Streaming

Glad to see LG is taking a stance against bilking customer out of even more money. I hate it when companies make you buy additional accessories to use something that should already be in place. I had to help someone with an internet connected Samsung TV which required a specific Samsung wireless adapter to work. Add-on cost at the time was roughly $100 and the adapter was tough to find.

You would think that from the press about Intel's WiDi that this was something new. But a simple display/audio extender does exactly this - these devices require no additional hardware connected to your notebook or PC, the only hardware supplied is a device that plugs into your TV's HDMI or other connectors and the other end plugs into your network via an ethernet or wireless connection. Install the driver software on your Notebook or PC and your display and audio displays on your TV. Examples of these are: Winstar's Network Adapter WS-UG17GN1 or StarTech.Com's HDMI over IP extender. So not sure what all the fuss is about.
